A Very Special Gift!

This is Heaven and Earth...or at least that is his registered name. His barn name is Oliver...or Ollie if he is acting silly! Oliver is a show horse, last shown in December (in this picture) in a Park class. His owner purchased him to be her harness horse, but Oliver did not care much for harness and his owner could not ride because of a medical condition....so she GAVE him to me!Do you know the scripture that says "Give and it will be given back to you..." well that scripture came to mind with this gift because it was only about 2 years ago, I gave a couple of horses away. Thank you God and thank you Anke for such an amazing gift! I can tell by his personality he is going to be my next sidesaddle horse!

Was he from Anke of Saddlebred Rescue fame?
What a lucky girl AND horse! You know I'm jealous, but not enough to not be thrilled for you.
Ps will look for those pics this weekend.

He's way cute. BTW I was looking at your post about sidesaddle in the movies, and there is another one - in Sense and Sensibility, Emma Thompson goes riding sidesaddle with Hugh Grant, and a fabulous habit. The scene doesn't last long enough tho.....
